Trout, pike and walleye destinations with incredible vistas, unique geography and amazing wildlife
CASTLE WILDERNESS, ALBERTA
Mountain biodiversity and catch-and-release trout
It’s known as the “Crown of the Continent,” an incredible 72,000-square-kilometre landscape of diverse Rocky Mountain ecosystems shared by northern Montana, southeastern B.C. and southwestern Alberta. Here you’ll find the fish-filled headwaters of three of North America’s major river systems, along with crucial wildlife corridors and habitat. Recognizing this significant biodiversity, Alberta created two new provincial parks last year in its portion of the Crown along the Castle River system, preserving more than 105,000 hectares for everything from the rare dwarf alpine poppy to grizzly bears, harlequin ducks, westslope cutthroat and bull trout. Catch-and-release anglers are welcome to tread lightly in the new Castle Provincial Park and Castle Wildland Provincial Park—and help conserve this heavenly slice of wilderness.
